The Words I Need To Hear #FridayReflections #MondayMusings

For my #FridayReflections I thought about the words I need to hear. I took all weekend to listen and these are the words I heard :  ‘let yourself’. I decided to turn it into my #MondayMusings post.

The Words I Need To Hear

Let yourself.
Giving myself permission.
Permission to be
To be me.

Let yourself.
Giving me sanction.
Sanction to move forward
To press on.

Let yourself.
Giving me encouragment
Encouragement to let go
To move on.

Let yourself.
Giving me courage
Courage to grow
To evolve.

Let yourself.
Allowing me
To dig deep
Into my feelings.
Letting me share
The dark thoughts
That sometimes
Threaten to overwhelm.
Helping me to
Bring into the light
My pain
And all that needs
Healing within.

Let yourself
Let yourself
Let yourself
Let yourself
Let yourself

Let yourself.
Two simple words
Prompting me
To understand
To accept
To enjoy
To forgive
To be grateful
To be happy
To be healthy.
To love
And be loved.

What do the words ‘let yourself’ mean to you? What are the words you need to hear at this point in your life?


Some quotes with the words ‘let yourself’…..

Let yourself be silently drawn by the strange pull of what you really love. It will not lead you astray.- Rumi

Let yourself be open and life will be easier. – Buddha

Let yourself go. Pull out from the depths those thoughts that you do not understand, and spread them out in the sunlight and know the meaning of them. – E M Forester


let yourself go



Let yourself be seen. Love with your whole heart. Practice gratitude. Lean into joy. Believe you are enough. – Brené Brown

      Love the introspection here. I tend to get caught up in situations and forget perspective, to let myself believe that everything is going to be OK.

      Hi Corinne,
      I wrote about this very thing in my morning pages this morning, so I had to jump in and say thank you. Thank you for being that voice of affirmation and en[courage]ment.
      “Let yourself” — it doesn’t get more simple, or more powerful, than that.

      It is so much about letting go and accepting yourself.

    4. Stacey W Stacey W April 27, 2016

      This is beautiful. I wish I could let myself believe and have faith when things get to be too much. I struggle to do that.

      So lovely, Corinne. Yes, giving ourselves permission to be ourselves is hard but necessary. Many women (including myself) are afraid of who we really are or shy about finding out. And yet, it should become our life’s mission. Thanks for the reminder.

      That’s lovely Corinne! It’s amazing just how powerful those two words are — to me it’s about permission. Permission to be kind to myself, to look after myself, to do what I want for me. Loved the quotes shared!

    7. Jennifer Jennifer April 26, 2016

      Let yourself. So powerful. I heard the word Live.

    8. Rosemond Rosemond April 26, 2016

      “Let yourself” Give myself permission to let go. Ease up. Relax.

    9. Damien Riley Damien Riley April 25, 2016

      This line resonated with me and makes me realize I must think like you sometimes. Thank you friend.

      So wonderful, Corinne. The post encompasses an ocean of wisdom and requires to be read many times to grasp its depths. I like Suzy’s thoughts of letting yourself believe in the abundance of universe and let yourself flow freely with it. My take home message from Brene Brown’s quote is ‘You are enough’.

      Let yourself BE yourself. I got a bookmark for church that says I AM who God says i am. Then on the reverse side there’s a bunch of adjects such as gifted, blesssed, wise, on one of them is at peace. Can you imagine how at peace we would be if we truly allowed ourselves to BE ourselves. Loved your post. If and hopefully it’s “when” I write from the coffee shop this afternoon I’ll link up.

      Corinne I flew high with your poem. It liberated me in so many ways.

      They are words I surely needed to hear..

    16. Suzy Suzy April 25, 2016

      I can relate well with your poem I have been through all of those and wished your wishes. What is it to be myself is a very difficult question to answer. But I do know the philosophy by which I live – to let go and go with the flow knowing that all things are as they should be and that we live in an abundant and loving Universe” Lau Tzu sums it up nicely with this quote “Figure out the rhythm of life and live in harmony with it”

      Let yourself radiate light
      Let yourself be kind always
      Let yourself forgive and forget
      Let yourself be present
      Let yourself enjoy the rythm of life
      Let yourself be positive
      Let yourself be appreciative ……..

      ………. Well conceived and well written post, Corinne ……
